Savory Italian Sausage Sauce

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"This is a great homemade sauce. It's savory and spicy, as well as thick and chunky. The secret is the combination of Italian sausage, green onions, red wine and red pepper flakes. Easily double or triple amount and top on anything! Even better the next day. Enjoy."

This was just ok, I have had better. I found the tomato sauce flavour to be too strong and made the sauce too thick. I'll stick to my usual sausage sauce recipe. Though each to their own, as my ...
